How to make an impressive CV for getting a job

One’s curriculum vitae is a crucial part of the job recruitment and selection process. If you follow the following tips, you’ll be able to create a stellar CV in no time.

  • Use action words: Your job is to show, not only to tell what you did during your last job. If you interned at a company, you could say, ‘’Created social media strategies’’ rather than ‘’I was a part of the social media strategy team’’.

  • Write your achievements: When you write your curriculum vitae, list your most notable achievements. Make sure that you talk about the results of your efforts. For example, you can mention that you increased the follower base of an Instagram page by a certain percentage.

  • Use the appropriate keywords: Using keywords is not equivalent to keyword stuffing. Use relevant keywords. Open a company’s job description and identify the potential keywords that a recruiter may look for in your CV.

  • Proofread your CV: It is not possible to know someone’s complete personality through a CV. However, a CV without errors shows a strong sense of responsibility. Take responsibility for the curriculum vitae you submit by proofreading it. You can even use editing software before submitting it to a recruiter.

  • Make sure your CV is ATS-compliant: It’s not possible for a human resource manager to read 100+ CV’s per week. You must make sure that your CV is ATS-compliant. To know more about ATS, refer to this link
